>En Garde is one of my favorite games, but I always insist on playing
with the discards open. Otherwise, one simply must count the cards if
one wants to play well. It's not too hard, as one just needs to track
5 numbers, but I hate counting cards.
I much prefer the first edition to the second edition. I bought a
first edition copy for $40, which isn't cheap. But you should just
wait a little while--I remember seeing that Rio Grande was going to
publish an edition with a roll out mat soon.
